NOVI, Mich. -

Michigan’s first Cheesecake Factory is set to hit Novi in August.

A grand opening date of Aug. 13 has been announced for the 8,430-square-foot restaurant at the Twelve Oaks Mall.

The Cheesecake Factory revealed in February it was coming -- and to an area where the owners have ties.

“Having grown up in Detroit and watched my parents start their cheesecake business here in the 1950s, opening a Cheesecake Factory at Twelve Oaks feels like a true homecoming,” said founder and CEO David Overton.
